UPVC Door Security

High Security Door Cylinders

Lock Bumping

Lock bumping a UPVC door lock can take around 5 seconds for a burglar to gain entry to your property.

The Facts

UAP Door Cylinders
  • A 10 year old child can open a UPVC door with a bump key
  • Bump keys can be bought by anyone from a number of websites in the UK for as little as £2
  • When lock bumping has occurred on your property there is no sign of forced entry or damage to the lock meaning insurance companies are wary in paying out
  • Our UAP cylinders will protect you 100% against lock bumping. We guarantee this for life of the lock
  • All our UAP cylinders we supply and fit come with 5 years parts & labour warranty

The Truth

The truth is that the majority of security cylinders on the market today are not Anti-Snap so thieves will not even attempt to pick or bump the lock, they will move straight onto snapping the cylinder.

Lock Snapping

Lock snapping is a problem that most security door cylinders have failed to address. The principle is easy to enough to understand & apply pressure to the lock cylinder and it will snap.

The problem this leads to is that all of the other security measures that you thought were keeping you safe; the dead-bolts, anti-lift bars etc. are all rendered useless as lock snapping focuses only on the cylinder and exploiting its inherent weaknesses.

Locked out of my car

I managed to lock myself out of my car this morning and being on a sunday morning at 7am I was impressed with how soon the bloke arrived to me. Within minutes he got me back into the car. I will be keeping this incident to myself lol Great job! Amir

Hi Amir, thanks for the review and we're glad that your day wasn't too interrupted.

Moving home package

Used low cost for the second time in two years as we're moving house, they gave me a discount on my moving home package, everything was done to our satisfaction as expected, thank you again low cost

Really appreciate how quick you got out to me, I arrived home to find that my home had been broken in to last night whilst I'd been away, the mess that was left was a real state the frame was ripped apart and the door was in pieces !! Locksmith came out within 45 mins and sorted everything from the frame work to the lock, he strengthen the door with London and Birmingham bars and gave a very fair price for the great quality work that had been carried out. I feel a lot safer in my home after he did a free security survey to make sure all the locks were up to the best standard, all the work came with a 5 year warranty and was completed to a really good level. Thank you for coming and resolving this issue so quickly, really good emergency service. I hope i don't need another locksmith again anytime soon, but I'm will keep your number stored in my phone just in case!
Thanks a bunch I appreciate a good company, i will recommend you on!

Contented customer

I have a high security night latch on my front door and over the years it has suffered wear and tear. I phoned the locksmiths and they were able to supply and fit a new one for just £95. Considering that this new lock also came with keys and a warranty, I thought that this was fantastic value for money. Since having it fitted it has never failed me and is approved by my insurance company as well. Brilliant Company and have recommended to friends and family. Farhad

Hi Farhad, thank you for leaving us a review and we're pleased that your happy to recommend us.

Highly Secure Euro Cylinder

The high security Euro Cylinder is, as you would expect, Anti-Bump, Anti-Pick, Anti-Drill and Zero Lift. However, the feature which really sets this apart is the Anti-Snap feature. The Euro Cylinder will keep you safe from all of these methods of attack and replacing your cylinder is a quick, easy and inexpensive way to purchase peace of mind.

Ordinarily, companies develop locks and cylinders that can withstand lock bumping but there are not many that have thought about or looked at lock snapping. This is because creating an Anti-Snap cylinder is not an easy thing to do. Unfortunately, thieves and miscreants know this and so lock snapping is quickly becoming the number one way that they enter premises.

Recently there has been a wave of lock snapping attacks, so many so that it has caught the attention of the media. As a result of the coverage, many people are aware of this threat but are either unaware of what they can do about it, worried that the solution will cost a small fortune or are blissfully ignorant in the belief that their security lock will automatically be Anti-Snap.

Resist lock snapping and bumping

Your UPVC door is more than likely protected by nothing more than a £5 lock

As seen on BBC

The Anti-Bump, Anti-Pick, Anti-Drill, Zero Lift and Anti-Snap Euro Cylinder is specifically designed to keep you safe. The solution to the lock snapping problem seems simple but is the result of ingenious research and testing. Most lock cylinders snap in such a way that leaves the locking mechanism useless, causing the door to swing right open. An Anti-Snap cylinder is mostly snap resistant but if it were to snap at all, it would snap in a way that kept the locking mechanism, and your safety, intact.

Of course, all of the Euro Cylinders are six pin and each conform to EN1303:2005 British Standard Kitemark, easily one of the most recognised and revered safety hallmarks in the world.
